HaShem Judges Sin

~ 9 ~

God's Judgment Unavoidable

9:1I saw the Lord standing beside the altar, and he said, "Strike the tops of the pillars, that the thresholds may shake; and break them in pieces on the head of all of them; and I will kill the last of them with the sword: there shall not one of them flee away, and there shall not one of them escape. 9:2Though they dig into She'ol, there my hand will take them; and though they climb up to heaven, there I will bring them down. 9:3Though they hide themselves in the top of Karmel, I will search and take them out there; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, there I will command the serpent, and it will bite them. 9:4Though they go into captivity before their enemies, there I will command the sword, and it will kill them. I will set my eyes on them for evil, and not for good. 9:5For the Lord, ADONAI of Hosts, is he who touches the land and it melts, and all who dwell in it will mourn; and it will rise up wholly like the River, and will sink again, like the River of Egypt. 9:6It is he who builds his chambers in the heavens, and has founded his vault on the earth; he who calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out on the surface of the earth; ADONAI is his name. 9:7Are you not like the children of the Kushim to me, children of Yisra'el?" says ADONAI. "Haven't I brought up Yisra'el out of the land of Egypt, and the Pelishtim from Kaftor, and the Aram from Kir? 9:8Behold, the eyes of the Lord ADONAI are on the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the surface of the earth; except that I will not utterly destroy the house of Ya`akov," says ADONAI. 9:9"For, behold, I will command, and I will sift the house of Yisra'el among all the nations, as grain is sifted in a sieve, yet not the least kernel will fall on the earth. 9:10All the sinners of my people will die by the sword, who say, 'Evil won't overtake nor meet us.'

The Restoration of Israel

9:11In that day I will raise up the tent of David who is fallen, and close up its breaches, and I will raise up its ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old; 9:12that they may possess the remnant of Edom, and all the nations who are called by my name," says ADONAI who does this.

 9:13"Behold, the days come," says ADONAI,
      "That the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
      And the one treading grapes him who sows seed;
      And sweet wine will drip from the mountains,
      And flow from the hills.

 9:9:14I will bring back the captivity of my people Yisra'el,
      And they will rebuild the ruined cities, and inhabit them;
      and they will plant vineyards, and drink wine from them.

 They shall also make gardens,
      And eat the fruit of them.

 9:15I will plant them on their land,
      And they will no more be plucked up out of their land which I have given them,"
      says ADONAI your God.
